Michael-Jackson

London, Nov. 21: Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and has changed his name to Mikaeel, according to reports.

According to the Sun, the 50-year-old singer wore traditional Islamic dress as he pledged his allegiance to the Quran at a friend’s home in Los Angeles. Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah’s angels. Jackson, who was raised a Jehovah’s Witness, reportedly decided to convert after discussing religion with a music producer and songwriter on his new album, both of whom are converts to Islam, said the report. “They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Mic-hael soon began warming to the idea,” a source said.

“An imam was summoned and Michael went through the Shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief. Jacko rejected an alternative name, Mustafa, meaning the chosen one,” the source added. —ANI
